The Pegasos II is featured in an article on the website AppleLinks. The article is called "Pegasos - An Alternative Power PC Platform" and it's a good read for newbies interested in a PPC solution other than the Mac.
One of the big stories on the Mac Web last week (and ongoing) was the Cherry OS emulator that is claimed to run OS X efficiently on X86 PC platforms. It remains to be seen whether Cherry OS can deliver, but there is another alternative to Apple hardware that is capable of running the Mac OS in emulation.
The article then describes the Pegasos system, covering it's CPU's, OS's, etc, and sums up what it's all about in a quite nice way. Read the article here:

No, I'm not saying it is "similar" to pirating, it *IS* pirating. It's
not like piracy is any better because you charge money for it. On the
contrary, it's worse.
IBM are irrelevant. What we are talking about here is a specific
implementation of ARexx, developed and owned by William S. Hawes. No
one is allowed to distribute these binaries without his permission.
Nothing has been re-implemented, they are the same binaries that were
also illegally distributed with OS3.5 and OS3.9.
To the best of my knowledge, the binaries distributed with OS3.1 were
licensed in an orderly fashion. If that is wrong, please tell.
Personally, I legally own enough revisions of AmigaOS that I'm quite
sure I'm safe in any circumstance.
